Lynne McNeil

Faculty members Lynne McNeill and Sonia Manuel-Dupont were both named in the annual list compiled by the staff of the student newspaper The Utah Statesman of the “50 Most Influential Aggies.” In its end-of-year edition, which also honors and lists all of USU’s 2020 graduates—a first—the newspaper picks out significant students, staff, faculty, and alumni. Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox is among those named as are the Task Force that is dealing with the campus response to Covid-19 and the online learning team that worked overtime to help faculty transition courses. Dr. McNeill teaches folklore and is also co-director of the Digital Folklore Project. Her books include Folklore Rules, Legend Tripping, and Slender Man is Coming. Dr. Manuel-Dupont holds appointments in English and the Department of Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education. She recently was recognized with the University Faculty Service Award.
